Anniversary Broadway revival of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

Charles Isherwood of the New York Times praised it for “superlative staging” and “the exhilaration of a fresh encounter with a great work of theater revitalized anew.” Widely hailed as a leading interpreter of Edward Albee’s work, MacKinnon also helmed the Broadway revival of Albee’s A Delicate Balance (2014-15). In 2012, she won the Obie Award for Directing and received  a Tony Award nomination for Best Director  for her work on Clybourne Park, a spin-off of A Raisin in the Sun that also received the Tony Award for Best Play.  
In 2015, she directed Al Pacino on Broadway in David Mamet’s China Doll.

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
